Hamas bears the responsibility not only for its own attacks and actions but also for the actions of Islamic Jihad, and it is paying a very heavy price for this. I ask that Israeli citizens strictly adhere to Home Front Command instructions; these instructions save lives. We are working, and will continue to work, to restore quiet and security to the residents of the south.” – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu

We are acting against Iran and against the Syrian forces that abet the Iranian aggression. Whoever tries to hurt us – we hurt them.

Trend Update: Israel & Syria Exchange Missiles, March 2017

Posted in Burden of Damascus, Prophecy, Trend Update with tags , , , , , , , , , on March 17, 2017 by paulthepoke

Zechariah 12:3 On that day I will make Jerusalem a heavy stone for all the peoples. All who lift it will surely hurt themselves. And all the nations of the earth will gather against it.

March 17, 2017: Israel and Syria have exchanged missile fire. Syria fired a surface to air missile towards Israel. Syria is reported to be shooting missiles at Israeli Air Defense jets. Israeli newspaper Haaretz indicates the Syrian missile was shot down by the Israel missile defense Arrow system. The missile was intercepted north of Jerusalem.

Arrow is one of three Israeli defense systems. Arrow has capabilities to intercept missiles above the Earth’s atmosphere. A second system is the Iron Dome. The Iron Dome can take out short range rockets. The third system is David’s sling. The sling accounts for mid-range threats.

http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2017/03/17/israels-arrow-anti-missile-system-scores-first-hit.html

Syria claims to have shot down an Israeli jet. Israel is denying the report and indicates all aircraft are accounted. The area in question is the eastern part of the Homs Province.

“As part of its right to defend the sanctity of its territory, the Syrian air defense responded to this aggression and shot down one of the planes while the rest of them were forced to flee,” Syrian Foreign Minister.

Syria has also called on the UN for assistance in the matter.

“Syria calls on the UN Secretary General and the President of the UNSC to condemn this blatant Israeli aggression, to force Israel to stop supporting terrorism in Syria, to implement all UNSC resolutions on counter-terrorism, including resolution No. 2253, to withdraw from the whole occupied Syrian Golan to the line of June 4th, 1967, and to implement resolution No. 497 for 1981,” Syrian Foreign Minister.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended Israel’s actions.

“Our policy is very consistent: when we identify attempts to transfer advanced weapons to Hezbollah, and we have the intelligence and operational feasibility – we work to prevent this. That’s how it’s been and that’s how it will be, we have determination, and the proof is that we are acting, and everyone has to take this into account,” Benjamin Netanyahu, Prime Minister of Israel.

The Syrian Foreign Minister also believes Israel is supporting ISIS. This sounds crazy. But it is important to remember Syria is of the Shia brand of Islam and ISIS is of Sunni belief.

“This flagrant attack is part of the Zionist enemy’s persistent efforts to support the terrorist gangs of ISIS. It will be responded to directly with all possible means.” Syrian Foreign Minister.

On Friday, March 17, 2017, Russia requested Israel’s envoy Gary Koren regarding the military action. This occurred in less than 24 hours after the Thursday night missile exchange per The Times of Israel.

Trend Update: Missiles Behaving Badly, August 2014

Posted in Prophecy with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on August 27, 2014 by paulthepoke

Isaiah 54:16-17 “Behold, I Myself have created the smith who blows the fire of coals and brings out a weapon for its work; and I have created the destroyer to ruin. No weapon that is formed against you will prosper; and every tongue that accuses you in judgment you will condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their vindication is from Me,” declares the Lord.

It would appear the context of the verses above is in a time of peace when the Holy One of Israel (Jesus, the Messiah) is leading. There will come a time when the wealth of God’s people will be in great abundance. Knowledge of God’s word will flow from Jerusalem. Protection from war will be without question. Security and peace will rule the day.

The Bible says Israel will go through difficult times before peace comes. It is referred to as a time of Jacob’s trouble. Jeremiah 30:6-7 Ask now, and see if a male can give birth. Why do I see every man with his hands on his loins, as a woman in childbirth? And why have all faces turned pale? Alas! For that day is great, there is none like it; and it is the time of Jacob’s distress, but he will be saved from it.

Today (August 2014), God is still watching and protecting His people. Israel has returned to the land as promised. They will not be uprooted again. Amos 9:14-15 “Also I will restore the captivity of My people Israel, and they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them; they will also plant vineyards and drink their wine, and make gardens and eat their fruit. I will also plant them on their land, and they will not again be rooted out from their land which I have given them,” Says the LORD your God.

Stories are emerging from both sides of the current conflict between Israel and Hamas that suggest there are other forces at work. Here are samples from both sides. It is not one side making these claims. Make what you want of it…

Watch Iron Dome in action as it intercepts incoming missiles.
